Tribes Fight Green Energy Wind Project In Desert

Industrial wind energy development is our modern day hydroelectric dam. Hydroelectric energy is considered renewable, but few people would call it green. The same goes for industrial wind energy. Industrial wind energy is not green, we need to look at rooftop and parking lot solar, increased efficiency, and reduced demand. Wind power production on protected federal lands is not in the interest of citizens, but lines the pockets of energy companies. Ocotillo Wind Energy = Hetch Hetchy Dam

Tule Wind Project Gets Federal Approval

Industrial wind energy development is our modern day hydroelectric dam. Hydroenergy is considered renewable, but few people would call it green. The same goes for industrial wind energy. Sunrise destroyed much of the viewshed of Mccain valley and the Tule project is going to make it even worse. I feel sorry for my kids that they won't see it as pristine.
